Death*1745 He died at Edgecombe Co., North Carolina, in 1745. 
Biography* Joseph Culpepper was born around 1696 in Norfolk County, VA. He moved to Bertie County, NC in the early to mid-1720's, to an area which later became Northampton County. By the late 1730's he had moved to Edgecombe County, NC, where he died intestate around 1745.

Since Joseph left no will, understanding the disposition of his land, and the disposition of the land of his brother Benjamin, is central to determining descendants of both lines.

Joseph's son Benjamin apparently inherited all of his land by right of primogeniture. See the article on him for further details.

Joseph's own ancestry is not in question, as he was a legatee in his father Robert Culpepper's will in Norfolk County in 1743, and no other early Joseph who could have been Robert's son.

As mentioned, by 1725, if not earlier, Joseph was in Bertie County, NC, as in August of that year he witnessed two deeds there, one for William Whitehead and one for William Bennett. (Deed Book 1725-1727, B2, B14) Whitehead and Bennett owned land adjacent to each other on the Roanoke River.

On 2 Aug 1727, John Bass, Jr., was granted "410 acres on the Northernly side of the Morattock [now Roanoke] River, joining the South side of Bear Swamp," adjacent to Robert House and Joseph Culpepper. (Abstracts of Land Patents by Margaret Hofmann, #2407 in her book, found in Patent Book 3, page 213).

On the same day, 2 Aug 1727, Joseph Culpepper was granted 364 acres in Bertie County on the "Northernly parts of the Morratock [now Roanoke] River joining Robert Newsam and Robert House." (Abstracts of Land Patents by Margaret Hofmann, # 2435 in her book, from Patent Bk 3 p. 220).

From the two previous grants, we can see that Joseph's land in the 1720's was near Bear Swamp in present day Northampton County, NC. So the land must have been east of NC State Road 305, and less than four miles north of present day Rich Square, NC (founded in 1750). Joseph may have lived in present day Northampton County, NC, from his first arrival in North Carolina, prior to 1725, until after the fall harvest of 1738.

The John Bass, Jr., mentioned above, must have been related to Isaac Bass, who, some 30 years later, owned land on Peachtree Creek adjacent to Joseph's brother Benjamin. (Granville Grants Vol IV, by Margaret Hofmann, her no's. 963-5).

On 5 Dec 1738, John Edwards [Sr.] of Bertie Pct. [later Northampton County], Esquire, deeded 320 acres in Edgecombe Pct. to Joseph Culpepper, for £16. The land was on the south side of the Morratuck River and the west side of Fishing Creek, and joined the land of Emanuel Rogers. (See more complete abstract above).

As proven by the grant to the adjacent land owner, Emanuel Rogers, Joseph's new farm was near Beaverdam Swamp and present day State Road 48 and about 13 miles north of Rocky Mount, NC. The grant to Emanuel Rogers, was "on the South side of the Morattock River, joining Beaverdam Swamp (a branch of Fishing Creek). (Province of North Carolina 1663-1729 Abstracts of Land Patents by Margaret M. Hofmann, her # 2537, from Patent Book 3, page 246) Beaverdam Swamp is just south of Fishing Creek and just east of State Road 48.

Joseph's new farm was about 30 miles west of his previous land on Bear Swamp in Bertie (later Northampton) County. Culpepper's Bridge, perhaps named for Joseph's nephew Benjamin, is on State Road 48 at Fishing Creek.

A few years later, in 1749, William Culpepper got a grant in the same area. (Granville Grants Vol. I, by Margaret M. Hofmann, #645 in her book).

Curiously enough, a land entry for a Benjamin Culpepper was adjacent to the land of John Rogers, thought to have been a brother of the above Emanuel Rogers. (Edgecombe County, NC Court Records, February 1741, Book of Rights, file # SS906, found at the NC Archives by Dick Culpepper).
     John and Emanuel Rogers may have been the sons of John Rogers, Sr., who died in Bertie (later Northampton) County, NC, in 1726. (Colonial Bertie County, NC, Deed Books A-H, 1720-1757, by Mary Best Bell, page 35 in the book, from Bertie Deed Book B, page 201, "Inventory of John Rogers, November 1726) Most of Emanuel Roger's land was north of Fishing Creek in the Quankey Creek area. John Rogers, Jr. owned land on Little Fishing Creek (a. k. a. Conway Creek), which was also north of Fishing Creek. In 1758 these areas north of Fishing Creek became part of Halifax County.

In 1741 Northampton County and Edgecombe County were formed from Bertie County.

In January 1741, Joseph Culpepper of Edgecombe County deeded to his brother Benjamin Culpepper, of Edgecombe Co, 160 acres for £8 on west side of Fishing Creek, which was one-half of the John Edwards tract mentioned above. Some 260 years later, this one key deed is the most troubling one to current researchers. One can only speculate why, but this deed does not adequately describe the land involved in this sale. Was this the east half, or the west half, of Joseph's original Fishing Creek property. We may never know. And the question is important. (A more complete abstract of the deed will be found above)

Joseph's cattle brand is recorded in Edgecombe County in 1741 in the "Book of Marks." ( per Dick Culpepper, file No. 37.910.1, NC Archives.)

On 27 Feb 1743, Joseph Culpepper took out a land entry for 300 acres in Edgecombe County on the north side of Swift Creek below the mouth of Tuckahoe Branch, including his own improvements. (Tuckahoe Branch on Swift Creek is not mentioned in "The North Carolina Gazeteer," by Powell. It does mention other Tuckahoes, and says that the Tuckahoe was a plant whose roots were eaten by the Indians.) The location of this grant on Swift Creek has not been positively identified. This writer thinks that it was probably near Hilliardston Community, in current day Nash County. This is the point at which Sandy Creek becomes Swift Creek.

Back in Northampton County, on 6 April 1745, John Edwards was granted 595 acres on both sides of Bear Swamp, joining Joseph Culpepper's land, and at a point near the mouth of White Oak Branch, Solomon Fuller, William Boon, and the said swamp. (Land Patents, by Margaret M. Hofmann, her # 2839, from Patent Book 5, p. 223).

And on 10 November 1745, John Edwards granted 139 acres in Northampton County on both sides of Bear Swamp to Thomas Hayes, for £20. The land joined Joseph Culpepper, Solomon Fuller, and William Boon, and was part of a 595 acre patent to John Edwards dated 6 April 1745.

Since Edward's original patent (Patent Bk 5, p. 223, as found in Hofmann, Colony of NC Land Patents, p. 199) also mentioned the same adjacent land owners, this might suggest that Joseph Culpepper still owned his land in Northampton as late as 1745, having moved to Edgecombe County a few years earlier. It is not clear whether Joseph sold this land in Northampton prior to his death in 1745, or whether his widow or heirs sold it after his death. Whoever bought the land, unfortunately, did not record the deed.

John Edwards Sr., gave his sons John Jr., and Thomas, land in the Rocky Swamp area north of Fishing Creek, in what later became Halifax County. (Edgecombe Pct. Deeds, by Margaret Hofmann, Book 3, p. 136, and Book 5, p. 192) John Edwards Sr. died in Northampton County in 1765, and his will does not mention a daughter who married a Culpepper.

So while Joseph and Benjamin Culpepper lived south of Fishing Creek, some of their acquaintances lived north of Fishing Creek, such as John and Emanuel Rogers.

Joseph died in Edgecombe County in 1745. His wife Martha was appointed administrator of his estate in May 1745, and in August was appointed guardian of their four minor children, John, Joseph, Argent, and Sampson. The children were all under the age of fourteen since their guardian was appointed by the court.

At the time of his death, Joseph apparently owned one or possibly two tracts of land. He owned the west half of his 320 acre grant on Fishing Creek. And he may have owned a 300 acre tract on Swift Creek, for which no final patent has survived. This writer thinks that he owned both tracts, and that that both devolved by right of primogeniture, to his son Benjamin. See the article on Benjamin for further details.

Joseph's widow, Martha, probably continued to live on the west half of the Fishing Creek property until she remarried, around 1751 to Benjamin Dumas. At this point, her son Benjamin sold his half of the Fishing Creek property to his cousin Benjamin, ferryman, whose own widowed mother already lived on the east half of the property.

On 21 August 1753, William Wilder sold 100 acres adjacent to the widow Culpepper and the widow Mason and the south side of Fishing Creek. Witnesses were Thomas Mann, Benjamin Culpepper (B was his mark) and Nathaniel Powell (N was his mark). (Edgecombe Pct. Deeds by Margaret M. Hofmann, Deed Book 4, page 531) This land had been a grant to William Wilder on 2 May 1752. (Granville Grants Vol. I, by Hofmann, #1292 in her book, from Patent Book 11, page 304) From the description of the land, we can see that it bounded Joseph Culpepper's original Fishing Creek property on the west.

The widow Mason, just mentioned, was probably Hannah, widow of Ralph Mason. (Estate Records of Edgecombe County, NC, by Joseph W. Watson, page 175) Later deeds show Ralph Mason's son Mark living adjacent to the Culpepper farm, so Hannah must have been deceased by then. (Granville Grants, Vol. I, by Hofmann, # 999 in her book, from Patent Book 11, page 237 -- see also #863 and #1292 in this book) Ralph's son, Foster Mason, also lived in this area, and his wife Elizabeth was a widow by this time as well.

William Wilder, just mentioned, had married Elizabeth Culpepper, daughter of Joseph and Martha Culpepper, around 1745.

According to testimony in court Martha Culpepper's second husband, Benjamin Dumas died 1 Oct 1763 in Anson County. He did not leave a will.

Martha's will has been found in the court minutes of a case filed in Salisbury District by John and Joseph Culpepper, sons of Joseph Culpepper, Sr., against David Dumas, son of Benjamin Dumas and administrator of his estate. Martha's will was dated 23 Jan 1764 and was probated 26 Jan, 1764. (Rowan County Estate Records 1753-1929, under the heading "Benjamin Dumas, 1764" at the NC State Archives).

In it she mentioned her "well beloved children" Joseph Culpepper, John Culpepper, Sampson Culpepper, Elizabeth Wilder and Sarah Culpepper. Sampson was called "my youngest son." Elizabeth and Sarah were not mentioned when Joseph died so they must have been over 21 or married.

A daughter, Argent, was mentioned in Joseph Culpepper's estate, but not in his widow Martha's will.4

Biography* ANALYSIS OF PETITION OF EXECUTORS OF MARTHA DUMAS
.
A Petition in Equity was filed by JOSEPH CULPEPPER and JOHN CULPEPPER, executors of the estate of MARTHA DUMAS against DAVID DUMAS, administrator of the estate of BENJAMIN DUMAS in the Superior Court of Rowan County, North Carolina in September, 1764. This Petition was recently found and copied in the North Carolina Archives by Gertrude J. Stone. The location of the record is most curious. The Archives stamped the copy.
.
From: Rowan County Estate Records, 1753 to 1929
Name: Benjamin Dumas
.
In actuality the Petition is a pleading in the Superior Court and belongs in its records rather than in the estate records.
.
All of the parties were residents of Anson County, NC. Accordingly, at first it seems quite odd that the case was filed in Rowan County. A knowledge of the evolution of English courts taught only in legal history courses and of North Carolina courts is necessary to explain the anomaly. Over the centuries a dual court system evolved in England. "Law" courts were more rigid. "Equity" courts were more free to fashion a remedy if the aggrieved party "had no remedy at law." The Petition filed in this case was in equity. Apparently, there was no equity court in Anson County and Rowan County had equity Jurisdiction over Anson County. Hence, the case was filed in Rowan Superior Court.
.
Under English common law, when a husband died, his widow had dower rights in one-third of his estate during the remainder of her 1ife. However, upon the death of the widow, the property enjoyed by the widow during her lifetime would go to the heirs of the husband. The Petition was a suit by the children of MARTHA Dumas by her first husband, JOSEPH CULPEPPER, claiming the dower property should pass to them under MARTHA'S last will and testament rather than to revert to BENJAMIN DUMAS' children, by operation of law.
.
The Petition establishes the following:
.
( 1 ) BENJAMIN DUMAS died without will on October 21, 1763.
.
(2) MARTHA DUMAS made her will on January 23, 1764 and died the next day on January 24, 1764.
.
( 3 ) DAVID DUMAS applied for letters of administration for the estate of BENJAMIN DUMAS on January 24, 1764.
.
(4) The will of MARTHA DUMAS was proved on January 26, 1764.
.
( 5) The Petition was filed in September, 1764. However, for some reason, a Summons was not issued until March 22, 1766. The Summons set a court date of September 22, 1766.
.
The Petition sets out the verbatim text of the will of MARTHA DUMAS. The important parts are as follows:
.
(1) . . . I give and bequeath to my youngest son SAMPSON CULPEPPER ore Negro girl named Effey.
.
(2) .... I give and bequeath unto my son JOSEPH CULPEPPER, JOHN CULPEPPER, AND SAMPSON CULPEPPER, AND ELIZABETH WILDER, and SARAH CULPEPPER my well beloved children, an equal part and portion to each and every of them, to be equally divided..."
.
(3) Sons JOHN and JOSEPH were named executors.
(4) Witnesses were JOHN COLSON, JOHN GIBSON and ANDREW PRESLY....
.

Research note*17 Sep 2007 Some have speculated that Martha might have been Martha Mallory, since she had a grandson named Joseph Mallory Culpepper. However, as a Mallory researcher, and a descendant of Roger Mallory, immigrant to Virginia, I have found no evidence of this. Martha was probably from one of the Norfolk families who lived near the Culpeppers, or from an early Bertie County, NC family. No early Mallorys lived in either place.1
